Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Recent developments in low cost VR displays have led to a resurgence of research into binaural 3-D audio. Whilst a good 3-D audio experience can be given using the state of the art technologies, there are still many problems to be solved. Read more

Auralisation in digital heritage

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Computer visualisation is often used in archaeology, history and cultural heritage to render particular scenes or buildings and aims to offer an additional understanding, insight or experience of a past environment, as well as more effective audience engagement. Read more

‘Vowel matching’ in chorus singing

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Modifying vowels is a common technique employed by singers when singing as a group to maximise the blended quality of the sound. Whilst there is natural variation of vowels between speakers and singers, a conscious effort is made to match the quality of vowels between singers. Read more

Improvements in headphone based 3-D audio using adaptive binaural signal processing and robust head-tracking

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Design of immersive binaural surround systems requires an understanding of the perceptual cues for sound source localisation. Any source at a given angle of incidence to the head will create subtle time and level difference cues at the ears and is subject to spectral shaping due to the pinnae. Read more

Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e. Read more

Interactive spatial audio rendering

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Impulse response capture of acoustic spaces for convolution-based reverb is a common application in many aspects of audio and music technology practice, and there are standardised approaches that enable high quality immersive virtual acoustic environments to be created based on real-world data. Read more

Soundfield analysis and synthesis using higher order ambisonics

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Ambisonics is a spatial audio capture and reproduction system that has been utilised since the 1970’s, primarily for music reproduction, but has of late gained significant interest in broadcast, gaming and interactive immersive video frameworks. Read more

Soundscape Research: Analysis, Auralisation, and Assessment

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
The simulation of sounds in our natural environment is important for us be able to more reliably model and analyse the acoustic results of small or large-scale, human interventions, such as a newly proposed road, airport or rail project. Read more

The role of vibrato in the aesthetic of blended choral singing

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
A fundamental aspect of good choral singing identified by performers, directors, critics and theorists is the concept of blend. Blend is a term that has essentially come to encompass all aspects of singing that lead to a sound in which no one voice is distinguishable from another. Read more

Virtual acoustic simulation for auralisation

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Auralisation is the audio equivalent of visualisation – the accurate rendering of an acoustic environment such that the listener perceives the result as being natural or real. Read more
